Joe Gransden’s Big Band Show swings into Venkman’s on March 3 with classical jazz soundscapes and an oscillating trumpet. With the accompaniment of a grandiose 16-piece orchestra, the show captivates audiences with familiar, often funky old-soul soundscapes that flutter between soft jazz covers and booming renditions of hits like Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” and James Taylor’s “Wichita Lineman.”

The group’s latest album, Go Getta, features saxophone legend Kenny G in full force, elegantly bringing life to remarkable classics of the past while revitalizing older melodies and ballads with an imbued new sense of élan and commitment. 

Whether it be performing original content or reliving the classics, the super-group is sure to enthrall all within earshot.
